While Hillary Clinton is busy posting pantsuit photos on Instagram, committed liberal Bernie Sanders is making sure everyone knows where he stands on the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade agreement, a neo-capitalist abomination that would boost corporate profits at the expense of America's working class. On Thursday, Sanders attacked Hillary for her blatant refusal to take a position on the TPP. The New York Times reports:

Mr. Sanders, an independent who is seeking the Democratic nomination, said he is offended by Mrs. Clinton’s silence on trade and urged her to share her real views with voters.

"Trade policies have been disastrous," Mr. Sanders said at a breakfast hosted by The Christian Science Monitor in Washington. "If she’s against this, we need her to speak out, right now."

Mr. Sanders then listed a number of issues where he said Mrs. Clinton has failed to share her views, including climate change, the Keystone Pipeline and the renewal of the Patriot Act.

Clinton, whose husband signed into law the job-killing NAFTA trade agreement in 1993, has repeatedly dodged the issue. "I have been for trade agreements, I have been against trade agreements," she told reporters in a rare press conference last month.

On other issues, such as the minimum wage, Bernie Sanders has stood firmly on the side of workers, while Hillary has vacillated. Sanders supports a $15-an-hour minimum wage. Hillary, on the other hand, has technically only voiced support for workers' "fight" for a higher minimum wage.
